The GMB Union has confirmed that a new offer that includes a flat rate of £12.50 an hour for all drivers has been accepted.
While we were not prepared to meet the unrealistic demands made by the GMB Union, we believe this is a fair and appropriate award for our staff.
The highest paid drivers will receive a 5% increase and the lowest paid drivers 15%.
All staff will return to work tomorrow (Wednesday 19 January). Our teams will be catching up with collections as quickly as possible.
We’d like to thank our residents for their understanding and patience during this dispute.
